Nov 5, 8 am: Walk with Dogs (and History) at Joseph Bryan Park

  • Nov 5, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This morning walk-about is designed especially for dog owners and their canines, but not exclusively so.  We will walk the Azalea Garden Loop, then double back and turn onto Jordan Branch Lane. The first stretch of this lane is a bit noisy since it runs parallel to the Interstate, but thereafter is quite peaceful and very beautiful. We will walk down to the creek, cross the bridge, and walk along the pond back to the parking area. This last stretch is in grassy area and may be wet so choose your footgear accordingly.

Please note: Bryan Park is dog-friendly as long as the animal is on a leash. The fine for non-compliance is $250.00.

The park is easily reached by way of I-95, Exit 80. Take a right onto Hermitage Road, cross the overpass, and the main entrance to the park is on your left. You can also take Boulevard (Rt. 161) which turns into Hermitage Road and subsequently into Lakeside Avenue.


In keeping with the spirit of the historical aspect of the James River Hiking Group, here are some facts about the historical significance of the Joseph Bryan Park:

Joseph Bryan Park was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.

    6 of us walked 4 dogs about Bryan Park this morning for about 1-1/2 hrs. Some of us went to the Stir Crazy afterwards for refreshments. Good to see all of you! (sorry, forgot to take pics).
